Once I had more or less the same problem , but in my case the music was still playing and the rest was totally lock up
It turns out that the graphic card becomes to hot because of dust .
After cleaning the problem was solved
yes, thats exactly what happens. and considering this is a poorly vented laptop with known overheating problems that wouldn't surprise me.
The question is, how do I clean it? and why did I never see this problem with windows or other distros. I've run Fedora and crunchbang on here. I think I may have saw something smiler with fedora, but it only happened once.
